Every process in this course helps me in my marriage, my life, and my work.

Join a growing global community of couple therapists who have experienced the power of PACT.
In PACT Level 1 Online Training, you will learn the fundamentals of the PACT methodology and how to lead even your most challenging couples toward secure-functioning relationships.
Based on a unique integration of the latest research in neuroscience, attachment theory, and the biology of human arousal, you’ll discover PACT’s dynamic, practical, and effective mind-body approach to couple therapy.
Plus, you will enjoy working with your couples more, because you’ll know the methodology is solidly grounded in science and research. And, you’ll gain the confidence to work more deeply and get creative in the therapy room.
Here’s the value you receive with PACT Level 1 Online Training:
There’s no better time than now to register, as we have expanded the training and improved on all that we’ve learned from offering PACT training online in 2020.
To begin, no more screen fatigue! We adapted the Level 1 training to reduce screen time to no more than 5 hours a day for two days in a row. This will help you remain alert and focused, so you can engage with the material and remember what you learn.
What’s more, you can now find a time that’s convenient for you to attend, no matter where you are in the world.
To increase the diversity of professionals in PACT training to 10% in 2021, we will offer at least 20 scholarships in each of these categories:
Ideal for students in the US, Europe, and Turkey

The training is intended for licensed and pre-licensed marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists.
To qualify for attendance in the PACT training, a pre-licensed clinician must (a) be in the final year of graduate school, (b) actively see clients as a supervisee and/or intern, and (c) have a supervisor’s approval to attend the training.
Level 1 training is offered in English only.
When you successfully complete Level 1 training, you can identify yourself as a PACT Level 1 clinician/therapist, indicating a strong foundation in PACT skills and principles.
"This remains the most impactful training I’ve had in my career. I had worried that the course would not translate well to online learning but it was exceptionally effective."
"I don’t think the [online] format handicapped us at all. The training weekend was much less expensive than traveling… and much less disruptive for both work and family time. I’d gladly sign onto this format again without any worry of loss of educational content or collegial experience. Many thanks to all! "
"This was such a powerful and useful training. I honestly feel like I am a better therapist because of it; with couples, sure, but also with individuals. "
"Simply wonderful. Although we were in Zoom meetings, I experienced no sense of disconnection from Stan, Tracey or the other participants. The breakouts were fertile and novel learning experiences also. I was thoroughly impressed with the use of the technology, its efficiency and effectiveness."
While we continue to receive stellar reviews for our high-quality, effective online training, we’d still love to see you in person!
As soon as it is safe to do so, we will offer supplemental in-person workshops so you can further practice PACT skills and interventions with Dr. Stan Tatkin and PACT faculty. These events will be separate events from Level 1 and Level 2 trainings. These events will be open only to students who have completed at least PACT Level 1. In-person experiential workshops will be scheduled when Covid is controlled. We want everyone to be safe before traveling and gathering in person for PACT trainings.
